The Governor directed that issues on bullying in the schools should be reported to school authorities.

He said: “As I want to encourage you today I also want to admonish you; I want to say as a father and as your governor that I do not want to have students that will be condoning bullying or cultism in your school.

”You will have to renounce your membership if you belong to any and stay away from this kind of act.”
